ON THE SEVENTH DAY by T.D. Jakes might escape the notice of thriller readers due to the inspirational tone and message that lies at the heart of the book. That would be unfortunate. While not a literary stylist, Jakes writes from the heart, and is first and foremost a storyteller. What he has done here is craft a tale of almost agonizing suspense, utilizing a ticking clock plot device that also marks time on a relationship, the strength of which is strongly tested.
"There are strong components of mystery and suspense in ON THE SEVENTH DAY, but the unifying themes are trust, forgiveness, redemption and, above all, faith."
